AutoGuide Now For The Week of September 1

AutoGuide Now For The Week of September 1

Epic road trips sum this week up with two of our editors going on two different life-changing adventures. See what’s happening this week at AutoGuide with AutoGuide Now.

2014-Mazda-MX-5-01 2014 Mazda MX-5: Mike Schlee, Road Test Editor

“This week I’m doing something a little different. Invited to the 2016 Mazda MX-5 reveal on Wednesday September 5th, instead of flying to the event I decided drive – across the continent. Currently I am somewhere between Harrisburg, PA and Monterey, CA, piloting a 2014 Mazda MX-5. Following along with my adventure on and Twitter.

2014-ford-f150-svt-raptor Baja Desert: Stephen Elmer, News Editor

“This week, I’ll be playing around in the Mexican desert with BF Goodrich. We’ll have a plethora of play things, from Ford Raptors to Trophy Trucks, to run through the sand. I’ve been off roading my whole life, but I’m used to thick mud and heavy forest. Dealing with the sand in a high-powered race truck will be entirely new to me, and its a challenge I can’t wait to tackle. Make sure to come back for the video review, to see how my adventure plays out.”

2014-Audi-A8L-TDI 2014 Audi A8 TDI: Craig Cole, Associate Editor – 

“I’ll be cruising in style this week thanks to the large ‘n lovely Audi A8 L TDI. This extended-length luxury sedan has ample interior space and more-than-adequate performance thanks to its 3.0-liter diesel engine. I can’t wait to see if this flagship car can deliver on its promise of 28 MPG combined. Color me incredulous.”

chrysler-town-and-country 2014 Chrysler Town & Country: Colum Wood, Editor in Chief

Chrysler likes someone else more than me. How to I know? Because that someone else had the Town & Country minivan OVER the long weekend and I’m picking it up the Tuesday AFTER. It sure would have come in handy for the 700 miles I just drove with my wife and kids. I keep telling my wife we’re going to buy a Honda Odyssey. Can this van change my mind?”
